Copenhagen is one of our favourite places to visit as a family. We spent 5 days on holiday there and we could easily have stayed longer. There is so much to do there and as it’s a pretty compact capital city you can easily explore on foot. Copenhagen has historic buildings you can explore, boat trips, a tourist bus, one of the oldest theme parks in the world and many more family-friendly attractions. Under 12s can visit many of these attractions for free and in general it offers a lot more for families than most cities. There are several family-friendly hotels which can sleep up to 4 in a room or have connecting rooms. For a large hotel away from the hustle and bustle why not consider the Tivoli Hotel? Or the Copenhagen Admiral is a great waterfront hotel. If you click on a link in this piece, we may earn affiliate revenue.
